Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello. I am Ed, a Solicitor qualified in England & Wales with over a decade’s experience in the legal profession advising clients.
I specialise in Commercial Contracts, Business Transactions, Employment, Dispute Resolution, Personal Injury and Road Traffic Law and will be able to resolve your legal problem today.
Regarding the site’s automatic offer of a Premium Service Phone Call, I shall be delighted to talk with you by phone to discuss your issue in greater detail if you accept the offer.
However, if you do not want a phone call, please cancel the offer for a Premium Service Phone Call and you will not be charged extra.
If you are taking on outside investment in your company and offering a shareholding, I strongly recommend that you instruct specialise commercial and corporate solicitors to prepare the following:
1. Bespoke Article of Association to replace the Model Articles of the Companies Act 2006;
2. Share Sale and Purchase Agreement with your prospect;
3. Shareholders Agreement between you, the new shareholder and the company.
The Model Articles and the Companies Act are fine for small companies, but they are not suitable for more complex investor and shareholder relationships and often leave aggrieved directors and shareholders trapped when things go wrong with their new shareholders.
I hope this resolves your enquiry. Please revert to me if you have any further questions and I will be delighted to assist.
Otherwise, I shall be grateful if you will please mark your enquiry as “Closed” and give me a “Positive” rating in order to conclude this matter.
Please give me a five-star rating on the Portal in order to close this thread. Thanks. :)
